The Power of Peacocks
I have always loved animals and the symbolism they represent. When they show up in unexpected ways, I know that my Angel’s have a message for me. There are too many miraculous stories to tell in this one post but I intend to start sharing more about all the ways animal totems bring magic into my life.
Most of the time the actual animal crosses my path in the physical world, but in this case it came to me in meditation and in physical symbol.
When I launched my business I received a lot of inspiration in my meditations or from being out in nature. One of my favorite parts of business is branding and I love the creativity of design. With this business I received images and visions of peacock feathers. I thought I would try to use the colors as my palette, but instead ended up incorporating the feather into my logo. Which to be honest was somewhat of an “accident”. This logo was a “temporary” one until I could hire a graphic designer to do my whole branding package. It was only recently that I came across the meaning behind peacocks and I realized that despite receiving the download to incorporate peacocks into my business, I never looked into their symbolism! Even though the Universe confirmed the download by putting a peacock picture frame in my path while I was out for a run. Shortly after launching my business, I found a beautiful peacock picture frame, the frame was was literally a peacock, just placed on the sidewalk.
I feel so grateful to be constantly receiving Divine messages from my Angels and the animal totems that show up in my life.

Peacock is a colorful symbol of transformation and is considered the manifestation of the celestial Phoenix. Symbolizing resurrection and rising out of the ashes.
